Are softshell jackets waterproof

Most men's softshell jackets are designed with water-repellent fabrics and technologies, so they should easily withstand an occasional light shower. However, it's worth bearing in mind that very few are designed to be waterproof.

To find a waterproof softshell jacket, look out for models with Gore-Tex® in their product description. This means they're manufactured with a fully waterproof, windproof and breathable outer membrane. If you're planning an expedition in an extremely wet climate, or the forecast isn't on your side, it's always worth packing a waterproof jacket.

Are softshell jackets warm?

All the men's softshell jackets in our collection are lightweight and breathable. They're designed to be worn as part of a layering system, paired with a moisture-wicking base layer and an outer shell jacket. Some have a fleece lining, others are insulated with synthetic insulation or down, and some are lined with brushed cotton. The warmth of your new men's softshell jacket will depend on its specific features; they're incredibly versatile, but no two are the same.

For ultimate protection against harsh breezes, make sure you choose men's softshell jacket with a hood. And to keep extra cosy, you could wear a hat underneath your hood.

Are softshell jackets good for skiing?

If you're hitting the slopes, our men's softshell jackets make an excellent choice for all-day comfort. Their elasticity gives them enhanced comfort and mobility, meaning they won't get in the way of your most advanced moves. And since some feature an insulated fleece lining, you'll benefit from great wind resistance in mountainous environments.

It's worth bearing in mind that you won't get complete weather protection unless you pair your men's softshell with a waterproof jacket.

How to wash a softshell jacket

Knowing how to wash a men's softshell jacket involves striking a delicate balance. You want to keep your jacket clean and ready for the next adventure without compromising its technical materials and functionality. Follow only the most essential steps:

  • Wash your softshell jacket as often as you wear it. Most feature a specialised outer membrane that can become clogged up over time with sweat and cosmetic products like sunscreen. Keeping it clean protects its performance.
  • Avoid using fabric softener on a softshell. This product penetrates the pores of technical fabrics and can clog them, forming a film that reduces your jacket's breathability.
  • Wash your softshell jacket carefully. Fasten all the zips and pockets before you put it in the machine. Try to avoid temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius and use a low spin setting where possible.
